Dear Friends of Peggy Adams,<br />

Reflecting on <strong>2021</strong>, it is clear we would not be where we are today without the tremendous<br />

support of our community and friends like you. We have such gratitude for all the loyal<br />

champions of Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League.<br />

In <strong>2021</strong>, we celebrated 96 years of service to the community and to the lost, homeless,<br />

neglected, and abused animals needing our care. Last year alone, more than 34,000 dogs<br />

and cats directly benefited from our programs and services. Over 13,600 animals received<br />

spay/neuter services and an additional 5,249 animals received medical services at no cost<br />

to the community through grant funding.<br />

Peggy’s Pantry Pet Food Bank fed more than 9,300 dogs and cats last year which totaled over<br />

173,000 pounds of food! We can’t thank our supporters enough for donating much needed<br />

items from our Wish List which enabled us to help feed these pets who might have otherwise<br />

had to be surrendered to local shelters like ours.<br />

It was also a monumental year for Peggy Adams when the doors of our much-anticipated Lesly<br />

S. Smith Pet Adoption Center opened to the public in April. We thank everyone who made this<br />

possible. And because of you – <strong>2021</strong> was also a record-breaking year for Peggy Adams with<br />

6,639 pets placed into new, loving homes!<br />

I hope you enjoy reading through the pages of this <strong>2021</strong> <strong>Impact</strong> <strong>Report</strong> and seeing the<br />

incredible difference you made. Please accept our sincerest gratitude and take great pride<br />

in the impact you are making through your caring support of Peggy Adams Animal Rescue<br />

League.<br />

TOGETHER…we are saving lives and building a more humane community.<br />

With compassion for the animals,<br />

MISSION DRIVEN<br />

Saving Sandy - A Dolly’s Dream Dog<br />

The team at Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League ensures that every animal is<br />

well cared for and loved throughout their stay in our shelter. While the average<br />

length of stay for adopted animals is 30 days, some animals, like Sandy, are<br />

with us longer than others, and the effort to find a forever home never weakens.<br />

We celebrate our long timers. Sandy’s story is all of their stories.<br />

The Dolly’s Dream project was created to rescue,<br />

rehome, and one day help restore the image of all<br />

“square head” bully breed type dogs. Peggy Adams<br />

Animal Rescue League finds homes and new families<br />

for hundreds of these dogs each year. These mixed<br />

breed dogs are now one of the most popular and<br />

most beloved dogs in America, and we are grateful<br />

for the support of Dolly’s Dream that provides for their<br />

waived adoption fees and benefits for adopters.<br />

BIGGEST<br />

ADOPTION<br />

YEAR EVER!<br />

Lesly S. Smith Pet Adoption Center Opens<br />

ADOPTIONS<br />

Since opening on April 1, <strong>2021</strong>, the Lesly S. Smith Pet Adoption Center has become a cornerstone on the Peggy Adams campus. Thanks<br />

to the remarkable support of our Homeless No More capital campaign contributors, the new building provides state of the art space to<br />

shelter dogs and cats while they await their forever homes. Last year, the increased in space allowed us to take in more homeless and<br />

surrendered animals and experience our biggest adoption year ever. The Homeless No More Campaign raised over $18 million from<br />

dedicated donors who saw the need for expansion.<br />

Joining Forces in the Face<br />

of Natural Disasters<br />

In <strong>2021</strong> Peggy Adams, alongside fellow rescue groups,<br />

stepped in for animals at risk due to severe weather events<br />

in the U.S. In March, after winter storm Uri impacted Texas<br />

with freezing temperatures and power outages, we led the effort<br />

to rescue 70 dogs from the Austin area, 53 of which received<br />

medical care at Peggy Adams prior to being adopted. In Cover Girl Lucky<br />

September, we worked with the Florida Association Adopted: October 13,<strong>2021</strong><br />

of Animal Welfare Organizations to rescue 270 dogs from Hurricane Ida Rescue<br />

Louisiana and Mississippi, like Lucky, who were displaced by the<br />

devastation caused by Hurricane Ida. Peggy Adams was one<br />

of twelve rescue organizations who received dogs for care and adoption.<br />

We are grateful to our donors who have afforded us to have the space and resources that<br />

allow us to answer the call when homeless animals and our fellow rescue organizations<br />

are in need.<br />

MISSION MOMENTS<br />

FINDING QUALITY HOMES<br />

Olivia<br />

In November <strong>2021</strong>, Olivia was found outside a home injured<br />

and alone. She was dirty and had a traumatic injury to her<br />

right leg, leaving a bone exposed. The limb was injured<br />

beyond saving; Olivia’s right paw was amputated after her<br />

arrival at Palm Beach County Animal Care & Control and<br />

she was transferred to Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League<br />

for much-needed recovery, TLC, and medical care.<br />

After time spent being cared for by our team, Olivia’s<br />

upbeat and charming personality started to blossom. She<br />

was chosen to attend the annual music festival, Bark Back<br />

Benefit, in hopes of finding a forever home.<br />

Sure enough, she had a potential adopter<br />

anxiously waiting to meet her.<br />

Her adopter, Jenna, shares her experience<br />

meeting Olivia: “The night before Bark<br />

Back I saw a collage of the dogs that were<br />

needing adoption and I immediately was<br />

drawn to Olivia. When I saw and met<br />

her, I loved her and I felt a bond I can’t<br />

describe. She seemed to be comfortable<br />

with me right away, and since the day we<br />

adopted her she’s always by my side. She<br />

is so loving towards everyone, she likes to<br />

cuddle and gives hugs.”<br />

Olivia<br />

Adopted:November 21,<strong>2021</strong><br />

Feodor<br />

Feodor, found as an ill and outdoor cat,<br />

entered our Fospice program due to being<br />

diabetic and positive for FIV (Feline<br />

Immunodeficiency Virus). He was with us<br />

for 150+ days before being adopted and<br />

ADORED by a college student. Feodor is<br />

now receiving royal treatment. Feodor’s<br />

charming new life is documented on his<br />

official Instagram page “life of feodor”<br />

and is followed by 134 adoring fans!<br />

and animal care specialists provide for the overall<br />

health and wellness of our shelter and foster dogs and<br />

cats, including those needing special care for illness or<br />

injury. In addition, through private grant funding and the<br />

generosity of donors, we are able to offer programs that<br />

help community pet owners with reduced cost general<br />

wellness exams, vaccinations, spay and neuter surgeries,<br />

and end of life care.<br />

If needed, shelter animals are able to receive treatment from<br />

an outside veterinary specialist for life threatening injuries<br />

thanks to the support of donors who give to “Olivia’s Fund.”<br />

In <strong>2021</strong>, 27 animals received the surgery needed by a<br />

specialist and were given a new chance for a happy life. To<br />

In December <strong>2021</strong>, Hemi showed up on Karen’s back porch limping and not able to walk<br />

on his hind leg. She brought him to Peggy Adams for care. In addition to broken bones,<br />

Peggy Adams’ medical team found Hemi suffering from a skin disease, ear mites, an<br />

infected wound, and lice. “I thought that I would let him get the care he needed and get<br />

adopted to a new family. A week later, I caught his brother and returned to Peggy Adams<br />

with him. I asked how Hemi was doing and found out that the doctors at Peggy Adams<br />

had to amputate Hemi’s back leg since it had multiple fractures. At that point I decided<br />

to adopt him myself. I have a family of rescue cats, and some have disabilities or other<br />

deformities. It gives me extreme joy to watch Hemi grow and live on even though he is a<br />

tripod. I love this little boy - thank you for everything you did for Hemi!”<br />

Sonny<br />

SONNY<br />

Adopted: June 27, <strong>2021</strong><br />

Sonny came to Peggy Adams Animal Rescue<br />

League after being dropped off at a local<br />

emergency clinic in April <strong>2021</strong>. The ER clinic<br />

knew he was injured and that Peggy Adams<br />

would be able to give him the best chance at<br />

getting better. Sonny was limping and x-rays<br />

showed he had a femoral fracture.<br />

The surgery he needed is called a femoral head<br />

ostectomy (FHO) and it is not a surgery that<br />

had been performed at Peggy Adams before.<br />

With the help of one of the the University of<br />

Florida shelter medicine interns, we were able to<br />

remove the broken femoral head so Sonny can<br />

be comfortable again while walking. When we<br />

anesthetized Sonny for surgery, he vomited a<br />

large piece of what appeared to be leather so<br />

we had to take x-rays of his abdomen to see if<br />

there was more.<br />

The x-rays revealed that his stomach was full of<br />

something that shouldn’t be there. Two days after<br />

his FHO, Sonny had a gastrotomy performed<br />

solely by our 2 UF interns. They pulled out<br />

multiple pieces of hard fake leather. Sonny<br />

recovered very well and his new owner is being<br />

careful that he doesn’t eat anything else that he<br />

shouldn’t.<br />

SAFETY NET<br />

The bond between people and animals should not be broken or torn<br />

apart due to financial setbacks. To prevent pets being separated<br />

from their families, Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League has<br />

established the Safety Net program. The program encompasses<br />

key elements to assist pet owners with feeding and caring for their<br />

furry family member, with the ultimate goal of keeping pets in their<br />

homes rather than surrendering them to a shelter.<br />

Behavior and Training<br />

Pets with behavioral issues are often<br />

surrendered when an owner is overwhelmed.<br />

Peggy Adams Behavior and Training<br />

program provides free support to handle<br />

behavior issues that can be corrected and<br />

gives owners the tools to work with their pets<br />

and keep them at home.<br />

Peggy’s Pantry<br />

Through pet food and cat litter donations<br />

from the community and suppliers, Peggy’s<br />

Pantry helps owners who may be faced<br />

with financial hardship. In addition to the<br />

pantry on our campus, our team transports<br />

over 10,000 pounds of donated pet food<br />

to the Belle Glade community every month.<br />

Medical Assistance<br />

Medical assistance is provided at a reduced<br />

cost so that animals receive needed care<br />

regardless of their owner’s ability to pay.<br />

Through grant funding in <strong>2021</strong>, 5,249<br />

dogs and cats were spayed or neutered,<br />

vaccinated, and microchipped at no cost<br />

to the community.<br />

Riri<br />

Shortly after giving birth to her puppies, Riri became very ill, not able to nurse and<br />

running a high fever. Her owner tried two other veterinary practices but realized<br />

she would not be able to afford the necessary care. She brought Riri and the puppies<br />

to Peggy Adams and we immediately started Riri on IV fluids, strong antibiotics<br />

and cool compresses for her mastitis. After healing for four weeks, Riri was spayed<br />

and reunited with her thrilled owner. The puppies went to a foster home and once<br />

healthy and old enough, were spayed and neutered and shortly after, adopted.<br />

Oreo’s owners didn’t know what to do when they realized she got out and was<br />

hanging on a fence by her leg. They did not have the means to afford medical<br />

care and thankfully brought Oreo to Peggy Adams where our veterinary team<br />

worked to address her injuries. The team treated a deep wound on her back<br />

leg and found her jaw was fractured. We contacted a veterinary dentist who<br />

recommended a new procedure using buttons to relieve tension and allow the<br />

jaw to heal. Our veterinary team successfully wired Oreo’s jaw parrtially shut<br />

and, over the course of 5 weeks, she not only healed, but learned to eat despite<br />

the sutures. Although her leg injury was severe and needed to be amputated,<br />

Oreo thrived and, after an additional dental surgery after the buttons were<br />

removed, she happily went back home with her grateful owners.<br />

FOSTER CARE<br />

We salute our foster families!<br />

Foster homes help Peggy Adams Animal<br />

Rescue League save more animals by<br />

freeing up space in our shelter. Foster<br />

parents are incredibly important because<br />

they typically care for animals that would<br />

benefit from not being in the shelter,<br />

including kittens and puppies too young for<br />

adoption and animals with a medical or<br />

behavioral condition that is best addressed<br />

in a home setting.<br />

Radar<br />

Adopted: May 7, <strong>2021</strong><br />

For a while we were<br />

worried he wouldn’t make<br />

it to adoption, but he<br />

eventually made it to an<br />

amazing home where he<br />

lived out his remaining<br />

days in luxury. This is proof<br />

of fostering saving lives.”<br />

MISSION MOMENT<br />

TO CARE FOR, PROTECT, AND FIND QUALITY HOMES<br />

Radar was a puppy at Peggy Adams several<br />

years ago. His adopter gave him a loving<br />

home for ten years. In <strong>2021</strong>, Radar was<br />

surrendered back to us due to his extensive<br />

health and medical needs. At 10 years<br />

old, Radar was blind, underweight<br />

and his glucose numbers were<br />

skyrocketing. Our veterinary<br />

team provided Radar with<br />

the care and treatment, but<br />

he needed to be in a stable<br />

home to regulate his diabetes.<br />

Our Adoptions Coordinator,<br />

Adam, and his girlfriend knew<br />

that Radar needed to be in a<br />

home and agreed to be his foster<br />

parents until a forever home could be<br />

found. They gave him love and care along<br />

with insulin injections twice a day. In his foster<br />

home, Radar gained weight and responded to<br />

the medication.<br />

Radar<br />

Samantha saw Radar on the Peggy Adams<br />

website and arranged to meet him. She<br />

adopted Radar and provided him with the<br />

special care he needed, as well as<br />

travel and adventure. A great<br />

companion and friend, he<br />

went everywhere with<br />

Samantha and provided<br />

comfort for her as well<br />

as her elderly father.<br />

While reflecting on<br />

Samantha and Radar,<br />

Adam said, “for a while<br />

we were worried he<br />

wouldn’t make it to adoption,<br />

but he eventually made it to an<br />

amazing home where he lived out his<br />

remaining days in luxury.” He added, “This is<br />

Kittens less than four weeks old have no chance of survival if<br />

separated from their mothers, and during “kitten season” in the spring<br />

and summer many abandoned kittens are found in our communities.<br />

Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League opened its Kitten ICU and<br />

Nursery in 2016 to provide a revolutionary approach to saving the<br />

lives of newborn kittens: 24-hour care. In <strong>2021</strong>, staff and volunteers<br />

bottle-fed and tended to 381 kittens in our Kitten Nursery until they<br />

were able to eat independently and be placed for adoption. This<br />

critical care helps us to achieve the goal of saving the lives of all<br />

adoptable pets in Palm Beach County. Since its inception, the Kitten<br />

Intensive Care Unit and Nursery at Peggy Adams Animal Rescue<br />

League has made an impact on the lives of over 3,149 kittens.<br />

There are so many rewarding things about fostering.<br />

Knowing that not only have you saved the lives of these kittens,<br />

but the lives of even more because of the space in the shelter<br />

that is freed up when you take kittens home.<br />

HUMANE EDUCATION<br />

Thanks to our donors and the Lesly S. Smith Pet Adoption Center<br />

facility, our Humane Education program is growing by leaps and<br />

bounds! Over 3,800 children and their families engaged with inperson<br />

and virtual programming in <strong>2021</strong>, learning about ways<br />

to interact with animals to grow mutual respect. Thanks to our<br />

volunteers and their Dog Ambassadors for their participation,<br />

and to everyone who read a book, made an enrichment treat,<br />

or raised money with a project. It all helps our shelter animals<br />

feel loved while they are with us and better prepares them for<br />

their new adoptive homes. Volunteer Linda Laverty shares, “As<br />

a former classroom teacher and specialist for the Palm Beach<br />

County School District, I have been impressed with the innovative<br />

programs initiated by Peggy Adams, initiatives that nurture<br />

empathy towards and knowledge of dog and cat behaviors.”<br />

It’s hard to find<br />

places where little<br />

kids can volunteer,<br />

so we were thrilled<br />

to find Rescue<br />

Readers. To know<br />

that we’re part<br />

of (the animals’)<br />

journey brings us<br />

joy and purpose.”<br />

What do you get when you combine shelter<br />

Humane Education program was launched<br />

in <strong>2021</strong> and in 5 months hosted 92 schoolaged<br />

children who came and read to our<br />

animals. The future family pets benefitted from<br />

the attention and the children got to practice<br />

reading aloud to a loving, non-judgmental<br />

audience, and spent 541 hours doing it! The<br />

gentleness shown by the children while interacting<br />

was beautiful to watch and is a testament to the creative<br />

ways we are building bonds between humans and animals.<br />

Young Friends of Peggy Adams<br />

Party Animal Gala<br />

On April 24, <strong>2021</strong>, The Young Friends of Peggy<br />

Adams hosted its 2nd Party Animal Gala at the<br />

Henry Morrison Flagler Museum in Palm Beach. Led<br />

by co-chairs Stacey Leuliette and Molly & Nick Mele,<br />

over 100 animal-themed, black-tie attired supporters<br />

celebrated a night of fun and fundraising in support<br />

of the mission of Peggy Adams. And that night, one<br />

of the tail-wagging greeters from the shelter did<br />

find her forever home! We are grateful for this<br />

next generation of philanthropists who are<br />

stepping up and stepping out in support of<br />

animals in need. Their generosity is recognized<br />

on the Young Friends Dog Adoption Room in the<br />

Lesly S. Smith Pet Adoption Center.<br />

many dogs, cats, puppies, and kittens as possible adopted in a short<br />

period of time. Thanks to a Virtual Kick-Off Celebration, live and filmed<br />

videos posted on social media, and a Virtual Adoption Village website,<br />

the future of animal welfare in Palm Beach<br />

County. In 2013 we were informed of a<br />

bequest from the estate of Eunice J. Gardiner, a<br />

devoted lover of animals. Prior to her passing,<br />

Mrs. Gardiner established a planned gift to aid<br />

the lost, abandoned, and injured animals in our<br />

community. Peggy Adams now receives over<br />

two million dollars each year from this perpetual<br />

trust which ensures that our life saving work will<br />

continue for generations to come. In recognition<br />

of Mrs. Gardiner’s vision and generosity, our<br />

13.5-acre campus has been renamed The<br />

Eunice J. Gardiner Campus.<br />

Including Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League<br />

in your will, trust, or other estate plan is one of<br />

the most meaningful ways to save animals lives<br />

for years to come. We appreciate the thoughtful<br />

intentions of our Forever Friends. All gifts to our<br />

organization will benefit the animals we serve<br />

each and every day.<br />

In January <strong>2021</strong>, Peggy Adams Animal<br />

Rescue League welcomed the first Peace of<br />

Mind enrollee to our shelter after his owner<br />

passed away. More than four years earlier,<br />

before she ever became ill, Mr. Monk’s owner<br />

had enrolled her pet in Peggy Adams’ Peace<br />

of Mind program.<br />

Two days after his arrival, Mr. Monk was<br />

adopted into a new, loving home with an<br />

experienced owner who had been looking for<br />

a dog just like him. She wrote, “Peggy Adams<br />

was wonderful in all aspects of stewarding his<br />

adoption and settling him into his new home.<br />

He arrived with several of his previous comfort<br />

toys and a bed as well as a leash, crate, all<br />

his shots and two bags of food to start him off.<br />

Peggy Adams was very helpful in providing all<br />

Forever Friends are those who have notified us<br />

of their established legacy gift through a bequest<br />

or trust, or through a life insurance policy,<br />

retirement account, or charitable gift annuity.<br />

PEACE OF MIND<br />

First Peace of Mind Program Pet Placed<br />

the arrangements and information regarding<br />

his history and guidance for continued support<br />

and coordination with Peggy Adams... It was<br />

an honor to be the first participant in the Peace<br />

of Mind program and entrusted to give a safe<br />

and happy home to Mr. Monk.”<br />

Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League<br />

developed the Peace of Mind program after<br />

receiving numerous inquiries from dog and<br />

cat owners concerned about their pets’ futures<br />

and after seeing many animals arrive at the<br />

shelter orphaned by the loss of their owners.<br />

Through an estate gift designated solely for<br />

the Peace of Mind program, pet owners can<br />

be assured that their dog or cat will continue<br />

to receive loving, compassionate care if they<br />

outlive their owner.<br />
